Carmen Fernandez was born in Utrera (Province of Seville) in 1968 and comes from a prominent family of Flamenco traditions, which also includes the legendary singer Juan Talega. As the youngest daughter in a gypsy family, she grew up in the spirit of Flamenco. Her mother is a singer and her father is a dancer. No wonder then that Carmen devoted herself completely to Arte Flamenco.
First as a dancer and later a singer, she becomes a faithful interpreter of ancient flamenco traditions, and yet always gives the performances a personal character. She is a flamenco singer with solid foundations and flamenco knowledge. With her strong, catchy voice, she won the hearts of the audience at countless Flamencopeñas in Spain and at many festivals in Germany and the Benelux. She collaborated with Concha Vargas, Joaquin Ruiz, Carmen ledesma and Andres Marin among others.
Her first album is from 2003 and the second album 'Naturá' appeared on the market in 2005. Her latest album 'De Corazón' was released in 2015.
As a singer and dancer, she performed on many large stages in Spain, France, Austria, Italy, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Russia, Denmark, the Baltic States, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and Japan.
